Most Transhumanists don't even call themselves that
This whole idea of making ourselves "better through genetics" is a very pretty way of saying eugenics, and it is dangerous ground to tread....just 50 years has paased since the holocaust and it's being talked about in different shades of gray....it's still eugenics no matter what you choose to call it.
Because we as humans always push things to the extreme
AI...You could be right...it could turn out ok, but that's assuming we don't push it too far. The whole point of AI is to make computers like humans...with the ability to think, reason, and feel on their own. You cannot give them ALL of that without some consequences...it's inevitable. To be fully human is to have issues, and some of those issues aren't pleasant....anger, jealousy, control, etc. That was my point I guess.
